    Hello Zockers,


    we are getting questions about allowed/dissallowed mods more and more frequently. There are a lot of mods out there and listing all allowed mods is not possible.

    In general, all mods that dont give you an unfair advantage, in a competitive manor, are allowed.


    What does dissallowed/unfair mean?

    That means if you and an equally skilled person play against and you win because you got some automations going on, this is considered unfair. This is the case for

    all mods that let you press less buttons for example. Why? Because you simply have to do LESS to achieve the same the other person does. Examples for these

    unfair mods for competitive gameplay are:


    -Armor Indicators

    -sprint-toggles

    -autoclickers

    -auto-armors

    ...


    Some of these mods might become "legal" in the future so stay up to date. However you can probably see that these gameplay automations are not fair if it comes

    to competitive gameplay. Since its nearly impossible to proof that someone is using those mods, we can only encourage fair gameplay and hope that you gyus understand

    that we want as much fairness as possible when it comes to third party applications.


    Allowed Mods:


    Mods that dont enhance competitive gameplay.

    - All cosmetic mods, like custom capes, heads, skins, texture and sounds...

    - Recipe mods, NEI, JEI, waila, ...

    - Optifine, translators, ...


    Mods that mimic MinecraftZocker mechanics are allowed, but not recommended:

    - Health indicators

    - playernames


    Recommended Mods:

    Mods that are frequently used, dont give an unfair advantage and help you enjoy the gameplay.

    - Forge Modloader

    - Optifine

    - JEI

    - Waila (1.8-1.9.X) / Hwyla (1.10+)



    Disclaimer:

    We cannot guarantee that the Server is compatible with "Mod X" or Modlauncher "Y" or any sort of special launcher. We are sure that playing with the recommended mods on the VANILLA (Default) launcher wont have an impact on our anticheat or mechanics. In general, download mods form save websites such as Curseforge or Planet minecraft, Dont use unknow websites malicious version could be uploaded. Again you are responsible on your own for downloading any mod.



    FAQ:


    Q: Is Mod "X" allowed?

    A: Please read this post thoroughly. If you have serious concerns that your mod is not allowed then dont use it. We cant check each and every mod.


    Q: Everyone uses Mod "X" why cant i use it on MZ?

    A: We are encouraging fair gameplay and even though some mods are frequently used they dont comply with our understanding of "fair-play"


    Q: "xNoobSlayer1337Xx is using mod "X" please ban

    A: It's almost impossible to proof. If you are absolutely sure, then keep in mind that he is using tools because he is not good enough to play without.


    Q: Can you add Mod "Z" to recommended?

    A: The Recommended Mods are carefully chosen and we can't check all mods. We will however check more and more mods and compabilities and might update this list.


    Q: When will Mod "Y" be added to allowed?

    A: Maybe never, maybe tomorrow. Just follow this Post.


    Q: ... ?

    A: Use your brains and afterwards ask a Staff. They will contact the management and give you an answer.
